Is the fact that my conveyancer in Ilford is not listed on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s work?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should contact the Ilford conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
